Humber’s Funeral Director Class 2 (Non-Embalming) diploma program draws students from around the world, preparing them to make a difference in the lives of people who are grieving the loss of a loved one. This is the only English-speaking Funeral Service Education program in Ontario.
Courses are designed with industry input, ensuring that what you’re learning is current and relevant. You will learn all aspects of funeral home operation, as well as the practical and theoretical sides of funeral service. Courses in issues of grief and bereavement prepare you for the emotional side while courses in arranging, ethics and introduction to embalming will enable you to explain all options to families in arrangements. Business courses will help you understand the challenges of operating a business.
The use of the funeral service labs will aid you in gaining practical experience, as well as a six-month paid work placement with co-operating funeral homes in Ontario.
